The HeartMath Institute has done amazing scientific research providing evidence and techniques which help to translate Eastern wisdom for the Western mind. I recommend the book The HeartMath Solution, and if you're interested in a kinesthetic experience they sell heart rate monitors that pair with an app or computer software.
Yoga Nidra Network's free guided meditations online are fantastic. Yoga Nidra is a meditation practice similar to progressive muscle relaxation that provides the benefits of several hours of sleep. Sessions can be tailored to relieve specific issues and it is possible to experience profound internal shifts. I love helping clients process insights experienced during this powerful style of meditation.
Brene Brown's work on shame, vulnerability, courage and belonging is a revelation. Seek out her five books starting with The Gifts of Imperfection, and search for her videos/interviews online.
